Wanted to share my good fortune...I was able to purchase this Colt 1911
manufactured in 1917.

The cost?

$600 shipped - Deal? I think it was freaking awesome!

So when we see it on here for sale in about 6 months for $1500...will it still be a deal? :evil:

I felt this one myself :bow:

Don't ya just luv it that they are stamped US Government Property ?

Not any more..........Thank God they were not destroyed like the gubermint does to the AR's now.

I don't know what they do to retired M9's (beretta 92SF's)

Thats amazing, I hope to collect 1911s one day (when I can afford it) and I definately hope to get deals like that.

Can you look up its history etc. by using the SN like with garands?

I know you can request a letter from the historical department from Colt and tell where it was sent to originally. Other, than that, I don't believe there's much available to trace the history of the gun.

'NECK--THIS ONE WILL NOT BE SOLD WHILE I'M ALIVE

That's a good deal. I have seen mix matched WWII 1911s sell for more than that.
